ok so i took the ol girl out for the fist time this year, and got a new issue to solve. (as if owning and maintaining one of these things isnt enough already lol. So anyway, here is the deal. Over winter i was wasting money on my tow pig and i decided to install a 4" lift kit since an f250 is already so short to begin with..
I knew i was going to have to drop my hitch head to compensate, no big deal, but i have now ran out of holes to lower it and i need a new shank ( i was using a 10" drop shank beffore )
so couple of questions for those of you who have switched out the shanks on your hitches
1. if i just decide to get a new shank, where is the cheapest place to look ?
2. If i decide to just ditch the hitch entirely (its a basic round bar/chain/friction bar setup) and go with a cleaner and quieter system like a dual cam can i get it with a 2.5" bar to fit an f250 reciever without an adapter, and with an extended drop shank, or will i STILL need to find a place to purchase one after i buy a new system?
3. any other ideas/recommendations for what i should or could do? (and no im not taking the lift off the truck, i like it !!
last year i ran the basic wdh with round bars and friction bar, and once it was all tweaked and set up just right it towed GREAT...much better than i ever thought such a basic wdh system could. But if i gotta spend money and set the thing up all over again, i dont see why i shouldent upgrade the whole thing???
anyway, let me know what you guys think or any suggestions on the shank
